Our unique ERST process, developed jointly by Dr. Robert Edenborough - our emeritus chairperson - and David Rogers grafts insights from the field of positive psychology onto the output of a highly respected personality instrument. It comprises an online questionnaire (c.45 minutes) for completion by an individual, which is then processed by one of our principals to identify areas for exploration in a targeted interview. That interview provides the client with detailed indications of how well the individual can manage the issues raised around potential limitations or possible overplayed strengths. The information can be used to make accurate hiring or promotion decisions - or development guidance - as well as providing personal insights for individuals or teams, helping them cope with anxiety or stress. The interview can be conducted by the client after training, or by us. In the latter case the results can he captured in a narrative report.

  1. Will all employees be able to book programmes on the GetZeN platform?

    Bookings can only be made via allocated and registered contacts who can log in to their profile.

  2. Are individuals' names shared with the employee diagnostic outcomes?

    All names are anonymised and confidential. The diagnostic will only show the overall outcomes relating to anxiety, stress, energy, sense of wellbeing & productivity.

  3. Can we get in touch if we can’t find the programme we need?

    Of course, we work closely with all of our clients to find the right practitioner and programme to suit your needs.

  4. Do you have a library of pre-recorded content we can access?

    Not yet, that’s something we’re working on behind the scenes.

  5. Can I meet with the practitioner before the programme takes place?

    We go through an extremely thorough vetting process with all of our practitioners, so you can rest assured that they will be of the highest standard for your organisation. However, as we first start to work with clients we can organise a 10min introduction with our practitioners.

  6. How often will we receive the GetZeN diagnostic outcomes?

    For those who take part in the end to end GetZeN diagnostic, we will report quarterly. However, we are working towards a way where we can integrate this into your client profile so you can see the outcomes weekly.

  7. Can you offer taster sessions?

    We can do this, please get in touch to find out more.

  8. What happens if I need to reschedule or cancel a booking?

    Please see our T&C’s for rescheduling and cancellation policies.

  9. Will you be offering on-site services again?

    We monitor the government guidance closely and as soon as we can safely and responsibly provide programmes in your place of work we will be happy to.
